Some Reading for Father's Day

Today is Father’s Day so I thought I’d highlight a short story anthology found on Schatje's Shelves.  Fathers and Sons, edited by Alberto Manguel has 20 stories and features such writers as William Faulkner, Steven Crane, Franz Kafka, Ben Okri, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Richard Ford, and Rohinton Mistry.  The typical male themes of war, sports, and the outdoors appear along with more unusual and introspective pieces (https://www.amazon.ca/Fathers-Sons-pb-ALBERTO-MANGUEL/dp/0811816303/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1466017516&sr=1-1-fkmr0&keywords=fathers+and+sons+alberto+manguel).


In honour of the day, I also thought I’d share an article I recently read entitled “21 Women On The Best Advice They Got From Their Dads”:  http://www.refinery29.com/2016/06/113729/dad-words-of-wisdom-fatherly-advice#slide.
